Residential Real Estate Broker Sees Huge Changes Coming in Mobile Technology
Younger, tech-saavy agents, QR codes, GPS, and new technology on the horizon add up to game changers for real estate agencies.
(Boonton, NJ, March 18, 2013) — "Technology is not going anywhere — and what we've seen in the past is minimal compared to what's coming," says Jeanette Schneider, regional vice president of RE/MAX Southeastern Michigan.
Each month, Real Estate Broker's Insider speaks with a leading Realtor for its Broker-to-Broker column. This month, Schneider talks about the most successful things she's doing right now, biggest mistakes of the past, and predictions for the future. She notes:
"We're going to see huge changes on the mobile side. For instance, the QR code readers and putting QR codes on signs so consumers learn more about properties. I don't think we've even scratched the surface on that. There's also GPS. There are all these things we can't even envision today. We're also going to see a younger average age of the agent attracted to this industry. You start bringing that age down, and you combine it with the new technology, and I think you're going to see an explosion of change in the industry."
